Ballentynes Fashion – Fundraiser – Bible in schools
Bible in Schools is a non profit organization – run by christian volunteers throughout New Zealand and internationally to bring Christian teaching into schools.
In September, the organization held a fashion show at Balentynes in Paraparmumu beach to raise funds, to assist in this fund raising effort. The eveing was a sucess and fun was had by all.
As a community based photographer I believe in supporting non profit organisations. Once a moth I endeavor to do one job for free for non profit organizations.
One day I was sitting at home thinking what to do, the light and sky caught my eye and let me down to the beach in Raumati. The weather and light were changing rapidly , I noticed a young girl and her father on the beach and asked if I coul take their photography – it was on the moments came together and some magic happened for me its was exhilarating and got a lovely shot in the experience.
Web site are a vital part of any business and have good photos is a key component in making the site not only visually appealing but to make the site convey the intended image.
The Law Connection in Raumati recently re developed their web site . In doing so they commissioned me to take photos of the staff etc for the site.
I have been wanting to do some architectural Photography for some time.
On a recent trip to Wellington a building caught my eye, the design of the building , sky and shadow drew my attention to some key elements I needed to make a good arty – architectural shot. and here is what i came up with.
I am pleased with the result.
Let me know What you think ??
I was commissioned to cover a two day Noho at a marae in Levin . Local youth experience immersion in to their culture and participated in various activities. It was privilege to be involved and I learn an awful lot about moari cultre
Alan and Rayola , a lovely couple from Paraparumu asked me to take some photos in the studio to capture the essence of them and their obvious love for each other..
It was just a pleasure to spend some time with them – seeing a couple who are really love each other is just fantastic – the challenge as a photographer is to capture a portrait that truly reelects them and their love for each other.
As you can see from the photos below we did a great job and they were more than happy with the photographs.
Bradley Garner is a singer-songwriter and event organizer, based in Waikanae on the Kapiti Coast in New Zealand.
Each month I endevour some photography for the local Kapiti community that is either free or at minimal charger – I did these photos for Brad for no charge as I believe its important to support the local Kapiti community with photography where possible
Brad wanted some professional quality photos for his portfolio and EP cover to be released in 2012.
It was a pleasure to work with you Brad, I enjoy putting back in to the Kapiti community – I hope that in having some Professional Photograph it will help boost your profile.
We did two sessions on in the studio, the other on location. We got some great shots ….
On a recent visit to Te Papa to see the Brian Brake exhibition (which I am very pleased I went to) I was inspired by the work from his “formative years”
I have always liked the style of older photos – so off I went to find some suitable clothes from the local second hand stores…whilst contemplating who would be a good model.. Ah got it.. I asked my friend Illya if he would pose for the image.
Very pleased with the results.
If you want some old fashion or classical type photos of a certain Juana-era, give us a call as we are sure we can come up something you will really like.
